The sale time is the same each day — from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Maps showing the location of each garage sale registered through the city will be available by Wednesday, May 16 on the city’s website (www.ci.andover.mn.us) or at city hall, 1685 Crosstown Blvd. N.W. A list of addresses and summary of items for sale will also be available.

The registration deadline is the end of the day today (Friday, May 11). If unable to meet this deadline, contact city hall at 763-755-5100. There is no fee to register your sale.

Almost 200 sales have happened each year in Andover over the three-day period, according to Dana Makinen, human resources manager and organizer of the garage sale event. She said that 181 registered for the inaugural three-day sales event in May 2010. There were 192 registered the second year in May 2011.

As of May 7, Makinen has 98 signed up. However, she said that only 107 had signed up the Monday before the Friday deadline last year so she expects many more to sign up just before the deadline.
